The club director training course has been shortened to three days and the material revisited to bring it into line what most clubs want from their directors. It is recommended that potential directors attend the introductory 'How to Run a Duplicate Event' course before the club director course.
EBED also continue to provide seminars as updates on directing matters, both generally and on the new laws, as well as on the use of EBUScore and to support the new EBU forum for club directors to share information and discuss problems. https://www.ebu.co.uk/forum/ .
New flowcharts have just been published reflecting the impact of the new laws – these are very popular with many directors.
EBED has also taken over responsibility for the County director training program – with both the Advanced TD course (ie County TD prep day) in the Spring and the September training weekend in Coventry.
If you would like to encourage more players to become directors in your area, then please contact Richard Banbury(firstname.lastname@example.org) to help set up a suitable course. Course information and calendar can be found here http://www.ebedcio.org.uk/td-training.
